Two great ‘Contemporary Classical’ albums:
Christoph Berg‘s ‘Conversations’, released on the Sonic Pieces label.
Jeffrey Roden‘s Next Level Minimalism on volume 2 of “Threads of a Prayer”
Leandro Fresco and Rafael Anton Irisarri work together from Argentina and Washington – Steve Pacheco, from Los Angeles, publishes his album on a Belgian label – and Italian composer Lorenzo Montanà has his first American release on Projekt Records.

Three releases from the Cryo Chamber label, bringing you deep ‘dark ambient’ soundscapes:
Dronny Darko, Phonothek and Dead Melodies “bringing the sound of the old world to life as it shines light on the new and dying one.”
